Valve Celebrates Half-Life's 25th Anniversary with Giveaway and a Massive New Update

Happy birthday, Half-Life!

On Sunday, November 19, 2023, Half-Life officially turns 25 years old. To commemorate this crazy milestone for this awesome game and franchise, Valve is giving away the original game along with releasing a major update.

First up, Valve has made the original Half-Life free to keep to anybody that adds it to their Steam library this weekend. If you somehow do not own the original Half-Life, take this opportunity to add it to your account now and...
 

Alan Wake 2 Review: A Must-Play Psychological Horror Experience

Easily, the best horror game in years.

In 2010 Remedy Entertainment released Alan Wake, a game where a writer is pulled into a horrifying world seemingly of his own creation. Alan Wake was a game that I bounced off at least two times. Despite the game being well received by critics and fans, I felt like its gameplay was just a repetitive slog that even its unique story could not overcome. When a sequel was announced by Remedy, I found myself extremely indifferent to the news. Still...
 

It's Finally Over - Activision Blizzard Joins Xbox

As it turns out, this corporate version of Mr. Bones' Wild Ride does actually end.

Activision Blizzard King are now officially a part of Team Xbox. As of today, all Activision Blizzard studios and their teams are a part of the Xbox division at Microsoft. This also means that Activision Blizzard IPs such as Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Candy Crush Saga, and hundreds more are now owned by Microsoft.

This entire saga of a tale began back on January 18, 2022...
 

Review: RIG 900 MAX HX Wireless Headset

My new daily driver.

We are once again delving into the world of gaming headsets, this time with a spotlight shining brightly on Nacon's RIG 900 MAX HX. Priced at $249.99 (USD), the 900 MAX HX aims to be a more premium and feature-filled offering than the RIG 600 PRO HS we recently reviewed. Featuring the same dual-wireless connectivity as the 600 PROs, the 900 MAX HX sets itself apart thanks to Dolby Personalized audio support with Dolby Atmos 3D, plus a charging base station, a more...
 

Review: Starfield

A safe, if not soulless, journey through the cosmos.

Bethesda Game Studios releases are safe. They are familiar. You know almost exactly what to expect when a major new release from them rolls around. They instill a feeling of "I know this game won't be groundbreaking, but I know I'll have fun." Yes, there are some obvious differences, but the heart of each Bethesda game is almost universally the same. The recent release of Starfield is no different. To put it bluntly: Starfield is Fall...

  • Review: Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

    Review: Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

    Do It For Her.

    Yakuza Kiwami is an updated remake of the original Yakuza title, a game that was originally released back in 2006 in North America for the PlayStation 2. Right out of the gate, Kiwami can and should be considered more than just a simple remake. It feels more like an extension of the fantastic Yakuza 0 that came to North America earlier this year and less like a game that came out nearly ten years ago. Yakuza Kiwami delivers updated assets, visuals, and even completely...

    Yakuza Kiwami Launch Edition Vlog and Free Content Release Schedule

    With the release of Yakuza Kiwami coming on August 29, it makes sense that we get the last details on the game prior to launch. The launch vlog for Yakuza Kiwami shows us "exactly how extreme the Yakuza Kiwami launch edition is."

    There is also word about a Reddit AMA coming on September 8 at 12PM (PT) on /r/PS4. Pre-orders for the game get you access to a Yakuza Kiwami theme for the PS4.

  • This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    This is the Plot to Half-Life 3

    January 8, 2016 is when we reported that Half-Life writer, Marc Laidlaw, parted ways from Valve. 18 years worth of writing for the company saw him pen some of the best games of our lifetime including the entirety of Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Dota 2, and Portal. It was sad, disappointing, and even a bit frustrating that he left before we ever got to experience his work in Half-Life 3. It's weird to think about Half-Life 3. Fans have wanted it for years now, but Valve just doesn't seem capabl...

  • Rockstar Revives Smuggler's Run for GTA Online

    Rockstar Revives Smuggler's Run for GTA Online

    Way back in the day, Rockstar Games made a series of games called Smuggler's Run. Seeing as how the last games in that series came out for the GameCube and PlayStation 2, I'd say it's been a while since Smuggler's Run saw the light of day. That is, it has remained dormant until today.

    GTA Online brings back some of that old feeling with the Smuggler's Run update. You're looking at new planes, helicopters, and ultralights to play with as you try to transport "goods" around...

    by Shawn Zipay
    2023 has been a banger year for new game releases.

    Let's just take a little glimpse at some of the games that came out this year that scored a 90 or higher. We had Baldur's Gate 3 in August, The Legend of Zelda:...
